As a native Nashvillian and a Rutherford county resident, I am very familiar with all of the communities in middle Tennessee. I love to work where I live and that's why I am your resident expert when it comes to Smyrna, LaVergne, and Murfreesboro homes for sale and rent. There are hundreds of LaVergne TN houses on the market and the number of Smyrna TN houses for sale continues to grow each day as well. Murfreesboro homes today are gaining in equity as more people move into Rutherford county. Just let me know how I can assist you in your search for a new home and I would be happy to help you. You can contact me at (615) 200-7671 or visit to search the Nashville MLS.

I received an email today from a person who is possibly interested in doing a lease purchase on a short sale. This is the second time in recent months that I have been approached about this.  I wrote a blog out it some months ago but it obviously bears repeating if it is being questioned again to...
As a native Nashvillian, I grew up in the south Nashville-Melrose area.  I have lived in Inglewood and two different neighborhoods in Antioch.  Living in Antioch in the 1990s, I remember when Hickory Hollow Mall was bustling and running at full capacity.  JCPenney, Dillard's, and Castner Knott we...
